@chrisediting

Do you have the Three way?  http://shop.gopro.com/mounts/3-way/AFAEM-001.html If so, what do you think of it?  I'm thinking of getting one because of it's versatility.  I don't really see myself doing too much extending for selfie, but I can think of a few applications for needing the extension 9especially when wanting to get a better view over crowds) and I like that it can be used as a tripod.

Re: Best GoPro Selfie Stick? And How To Shoot Videos With Them?

I have one its bulky for one,   has   tripod insert that is a plsus for the camera alone or selfie stick that you kind of have to  watch if  wind blows over i camera is   leaning to far one way or pole,

 

 will give you a 2 plus foot reach,  If you find an extension for hte bottom you can extend it longer, so yes you can  get over head shots.. if asked. i got a 3 way from not gopro  can not afford gopro pricing Lol

Re: Best GoPro Selfie Stick? And How To Shoot Videos With Them?

Thanks Fish. Still undecided. I should probably just get it. Is yours a different brand? If so, which kind and how often do you use it?

I agree that the prices are higher than the cheap Chinese knock offs, but the quality of GoPro accessories usually is far superior. I'm not against the cheap accessories; I have my fair share. However, sometimes I buy them thinking I'm saving money and either they don't have the same features or just don't work very well. While I'm on the topic, Don't Use Imitation GoPro Mounts if you will be putting any stress on them. They are terrible, hollow, and they will give out on you and possibly cause you to lose your camera.

Thanks again Fish. Sorry about the rant at the end 😊

Regards,

Daniel

Yeah, @danielr15 I would agree to @fishycomics.

It's a bit bulky. You could go to Walmart and see it n the shelf.

Re: Best GoPro Selfie Stick? And How To Shoot Videos With Them?

Oh I could not agree more.  rant, rave,  Iam   happy with gopro today, and  yesterday not happy Lol.

 

The 3-way that Chris  shows and did a excellent jo,  one I got is called Welpe, I go tthat to Review, simply google  Welpe 3 way. no  name on it, made in Yes China, could pass as gopro's own Lol I feel if the   poles embedded into the handle I love it, it does not?  I got it I say   a   4 months no since Aug 2016 here is a video, I get aluminum mounts  ihad those cheapos  desntergrate as I wulled out of the Everglades one day Lol

Re: Best GoPro Selfie Stick? And How To Shoot Videos With Them?

Thanks Fish.  I tried the search but all I got was a bunch of cute dogs in my result, LOL.  I can't see the video right now because I'm at work and they block youtube and other multi-media sites Smiley Frustrated

 

I'll check out your video when I get home.

 

Thanks,
